Call for Papers: ACE Session at the 2024 SEA Meetings

ACE again expects to offer a Presidential Session at the Southern Economics Association’s 2024
meetings, to be held in Washington, D.C., November 23-25. ACE thanks Ngina Chiteji for her good
offices in making this possible.

Subject areas are open, but ideally this session would feature scholarship that explores connections
between religion and economic activity (in the past or the present) or focuses on areas of particular
interest to Christian economists. Presidential Session proposals undergo expedited review and
therefore have a high likelihood of acceptance.

Interested authors should email a paper title and an abstract (1,000 characters or less, or
approximately 250 words), along with author’s name, affiliation, and email address to ACE President
Stephen Smith at by Thursday, March 28. Questions are welcome, too, and may be
sent to the same address. (For co-authored papers, please submit the relevant information for all
authors.) Junior scholars are especially encouraged to apply.

ACE will notify authors in early April about inclusion in the session; the SEA expects to send its official
notices of acceptance with instructions for registration in mid-June.

Call for Abstracts

Economics for the Common Good: The Work of Christian Economists

A conference sponsored by:

The Association of Christian Economists
The Department of Economics and Business at Hope College

Conference Dates: July 20th to 22nd 2023
Submissions Due: January 15th 2023

The economics discipline is at the center of some of the biggest questions that humans face, including those about poverty, wealth, the role of the state, inequality, growth, the cost of living, migration, education, and family. Christian thinking has often motivated scholars to delve deeply into these important questions, sometimes offering a distinct way of approaching our pursuit of the common good. In order to explore Christian’s work in the discipline of economics, and to spur Christian thinking about economic topics, the Association of Christian Economists invites all interested scholars to join us for an academic conference at Hope College in Holland, MI, in July of 2022.

The conference will feature three plenary lectures by Paul Oslington (Alphacrucis University College), Sarah Hamersma (Syracuse University), and Daniel Hungerman (University of Notre Dame), as well as concurrent sessions featuring presentations by economists from a variety of Christian theological and economic traditions. We welcome papers that are theoretical, empirical, historical, or philosophical in nature, as well as proposals for panel sessions around a theme of general interest. We welcome papers that specifically address the relationship between faith and economic reasoning as well as those that use conventional economic analysis to investigate questions of interest. Selected papers from the conference will appear in Faith & Economics, the journal of the Association of Christian Economists.


Individual paper submissions should include a title, author, and abstract. Full paper drafts are welcome. Complete session proposals are encouraged and should include title/author/abstract for 3 to 4 speakers. Panel sessions that do not include research presentations should include a title, a detailed description of the topic to be discussed, and the proposed participants. All questions and submissions should be emailed to First priority will be given to submissions received before January 15th, 2023. 

Submissions from graduate students are encouraged. Students can attend at a discounted rate, and there is a limited pool of travel support available for students whose papers are accepted. Please indicate your desire to apply for this support in an email to


Hope College’s campus, green and full of bursting flower beds in July, abuts Holland’s attractive downtown with its many shops, restaurants, and brew pubs.

This page will be updated with information about registration, lodging, and other details as they become available.
